IN LONDON MARKET.
CONSOLS RULED MUCH
FIRMER,
Buying of Union Pacific and
Strength in Grangers Fea
tures in Xew York Pit.
.EPTJBL1C SPECIAL.
New York. Auf. 3. The London market
Inactive hi anticipation of the lortn-
comlnr holiday, but American stocks were
fairly firm and closed strong. Consols -wero
firmer at 97?i, and the general market
steady. There was no change In money con
ditions and exchange- In Paris and Berlin
continued very firm. The Chinese news
was considered rather better. The London
Stock Exchange will be closed until Tues
day morning1. .
In tho local market the buying of Union
Pacific on tho dividend and tho strength in
the grangers on tho inreased earnings were
tho features. Susar and Brooklyn Transit
showed fair strength under what looked
like pool buying, but a good deal of long
stock cama out In both and no advanco was
recorded. Thero was quite a little good
buying in Ontario and "Western on tha ex
pectation that the stock would be split thi3
fall and that a 1 per cent dividend would
bo paid. B. &. O. did not act very well and
seemed to derive most of its support from
the short Interest
The general tone of the market was in
clined to be bullish, but trading was very
professional and there were no signs of any
real public lnteresL The story of compe
tition waa again revived in connection with
Continental Tobacco, but did not meet wltli
much belief. The buying of the stock was
eood on any decline. Fair buying was re-
jjorted in Jllssourl Pacific and Northern Pa
nic, and theio was o. good deal or covering
shorts in tho grangers, both for Chicago
local operators. Boston bought Union
PacBSC and the grangers. London trans
actions were very small, not totaling more
than, some 7,000 shares on Uie day, equally
divided between sales and purchases. Honey
.was very easy.
Th'e closo was steady and near the best,
although a. deal of Jong stock came out In
one or two instances, notably in Union Pa
cific.' which was, however, well taken. Con
siderable short covering for Chicago was
tho 'feature in the Grangers. Brooklyn
Transit and Sugar were Inclined to bo
heavy, and It looked as If the pool advanced
the railroad stocks to get out of Industrials.
According to the latest Chinese cables tho
allies hope to roach Pckln about the 12th,
auid are not so far meeting with serious op
position. All indications point to early col
Lipfe of tho Boer resistance, A number of
alarmist cables are being sent over, alleging
the imminence of a money squeeze In Lon
don, but Buch Inferences are not Justified on
ny known facts. The enormous over
subscription to the recent war lean is tho
Jiest evidence that it Is held widely, and not
as alleged, entirely in tho hands of a few
London banks. The coal famine In Europe,
while sufficiently Eerlous, is already known
and discounted, and Its only effect 50 far as
this market Is concerned would bo to stim
ulate the export of coal and to help the
aroft coal roads.
The bank statement to-morrow Is expected
to show an lncreoso In reserve, but the out
flow of money for the harvest may be short
ly expected. With money at Its present
price, however, Xew York can easily afford
a considerable drain. Chesapeake and Ohio

Xcw "York Market Gossip,
The following synopsis of the gossip in regard
to the leudlng features of the 2ew York market
was received by D. It- Francis. Bro. & Co.:
New York Aug. 3. The advance In Atchison
preferred was started by traders who thought It
could be easily mado tu follow the course cf
Union Pacific. At 70't about 3,000 shares were
taken hv a firm usually Identified with the short
tide, thought In this Instance to be short cov
ering. London's transactions amounted to about
7.000 shares, with salts on balance of 1,000 shares.
Union Pacific, B. & O.. Anaconda wero sold on
the advance. Tho purchases were largest in
Norfolk and Western and Southern Railway. To
morrow Is n lymaon uonuuy ior repairs 10 too
Stock Exchange, and Monday is a bank holiday.
B. B. T. was weak when tho rest of the mai
ket -was steaiy, tut became steadier when the
tencral list advanced. There were sales of 2.500
shares each by Two brokers, who havo had most
cf tho largest selling orders for the past week.
If was thought that the selling was long stock.
Tlio advance in Union Pacific was on general
buying In scattering amounts, again based large
lv on a comparlsonof prlco and dividend return
with other stocks, notably B. it O. Tho selling
was mainly on orders at various limits standi n;;
on specialists' books.
The advance in SI. Paul was due to short
covering, bt.sed on the notable Increase In earn
ings for the last week of July, whoreas a de
crease had been expected.
A local short Interest bid actively for Ana
conda and advance! It. Friends of the stock
claimed that the short Interest was greater than
the whole available supply.
It was currently rumored on Wall street this
afternoon that nn Important banking- firm had
already offered to take. J3O.00O.000 out of tho total
$70,000,000 of the British Government's new lssua
of exchequer bonds, announced in London to-day.
London cables were as follows:
London, 1:45 p. m. Although the secarltlei
markets ore rather Blow as to movement, soma
Improvement la toao is dlscernlbU, 33ur km
Dealings Larger and the Market
Khonrd More Life.
The general market to-day showed something of
an Improvement. Dealings were larger and mors
life was witnessed than has been shown the past
day or two. There were no changes of im
IKirtapc" outside of mining stocks, In which the
trading was mostly confined, and which declined
considerably during tlie day.
Sales In mining stocks this morning were on a
sliding scale, and amounted to 7M shares. Th's
litst trades were, in Ainerican-N'ettic, which sold
to ths extent of 30) shares at J1.20. nnd 100 .it
J1.171;. Granlte-Bl-Metnlllc then attracted at
tention and 300 told r.t J2.20 and 52.1714.
There was the usual good demand for street
railway bonds, but the only trnde mado was In
one St. Ixmls and Suburban at J104.75, which
was bid for more.
